2021 Final Exams Canceled

Our admin team, teachers, department chairs, and select students met and we have decided to cancel this year's final exams for all students. Based student current grades, we feel that the formal exam process may bring down more student's final grades rather than help.


Below is a plan for the remainder of the school year.

USI classes went on a virtual field trip of the Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket.

Students Displaying any Symptoms

As we enter one whole year since we left the school and started distant learning, we certainly have come a long way. With that said, we are seeing so many hopeful steps including vaccinations throughout the state.


Unfortunately, we are not at the end of the pandemic yet. We are asking that students and parents continue to pay close attention to any symptoms before attending school or a practice/game.


If any student is experiencing symptoms, they should err on the side of caution and stay home. If you are on one of our teams and there is a positive COVID-19 case, the entire team will be under quarantine. Please stay home and get tested if needed. If a student tests positive and was in school, we ask that parents contact the school so that we can get a "head start" on any contact tracing.


Thank you for your anticipated partnership
